Fall 2011 will bring with it a new Chairperson for the Psychology department. Dr. Ryan Martin will assume the role from Dr. Georjeanna Wilson-Doenges, who has provided outstanding service as Psychology Chair for six years! Never fear–she is not leaving us. She will simply be turning her full attention to teaching, research and her numerous service responsibilities next year.
Please make Professor Martin welcome in his new role in the Fall (see how many course substitution forms you can throw his way in the first week of classes!).
Right now, though, please make sure to thank Professor Wilson-Doenges when you see her for all the wonderful things she has done for Psychology in her years as Chair. She has overseen major changes in the curriculum, the adoption of APA’s national standards as our department learning objectives, and much more! What you have seen most as students, though, is the amazing dedication and care she has put into every interaction with students, as well as her willingness to go far above and beyond the call of duty in providing advising to so many of our majors and minors. We here at the PF can only raise our pink feathers in awe of her great work.
